The time to open the closet and choose your look – whether it’s for woring at home or entertainment – can become in an impossible mission during these weeks of confinement. Confinement encourages to avoid getting out of your pyjama, despite expert advice on the importance of escaping from the comfort zone and adopting routines where the mind is active and positive.
Therefore, we have selected three keys – inspired by mythical films and trends – that combine comfort, sophistication and usefulness. Whether for business meetings via video call or to upload the most chic selfie to social networks.
The eighties and nineties left their mark on fashion. And this year’s catwalks are proof of that: brands like Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant o Armani have succumbed to the straight lines generated by blazers with shoulder pads, which create that static as well as geometric effect in the fall of the garment. The shoulder pads identify with a fashion, but also with power, the protagonists of series and films marked status at the stroke of volume on the shoulder. As in the case of Sigourney Weaver who manages to genuinely wear her in the film “Working Girl” (1988) where she plays an executive director called Katherine Parker. The shoulder pads say it all and with a basic t-shirt and a simple chain as a complement, she gets an exceptional result. Without a doubt, a perfect bet with which to place yourself in front of a computer and with which to choose to combine it with a pair of jeans -the pyjama pants- or a pair of joggers.
On the other hand, the white shirt is a classic that should never be dispensed with. And more, these days. It is a lifesaver and, in this case, it will help to give that professional and formal image without having to lose any comfort.The piece means trend and reminiscence. Trend because it is the year of its oversized version, in superposition or unbuttoned. Nina Ricci has included it in her fashion shows, and celebrities like Kendall Jenner have given it a prominent role in street style. And it’s reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw, the young columnist who plays Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City (1998), who wore a Hérmes belt in one of the scenes from the saga.
Finally, this season’s top is a maxi dress with puffed sleeves and floral prints, made from light, airy and fresh fabrics. A good option to add colour to the quarantine and ideal to add to the list of outfits with which to telework. In fact, it is among the proposals shown in the spring-summer fashion shows by designers such as Viktor&Rolf or Giambattista Valli.
As for the choice of where to take a photo for social networks or start a Skype connection, any area of the house is valid. From a table with the wall as a backdrop, to a bed with cushions as a backrest. As long as they are accompanied by these very useful tips during the isolation and that will allow to build a wardrobe in trend once you can step on the street again.
